Out of the Earth: Pit Fired Ceramics

peggypitfire-01For the month of November 2016, the La Mano gallery is featuring recent work of ceramic artist Peggy Clarke.

This unique collection highlights a process that is rarely seen in New York City—work that has been placed directly into a large pit in the earth, covered with organic and combustible materials and then fired for several hours. With flames rising as high as 6 feet from the ground, all pieces are surrounded by the hot fire. A cover is slowly lowered over the fire, creating an atmosphere of reduced oxygen during which the organic material creates lasting impressions on the pottery.
